Fishing Report - Lake Chapala

Post by Cincy on Wed Sep 20, 2017 9:26 am

First time fishing in the lake in about 4 months.  The water level is up to just above last year's peak so fishing from the lower malecon wall is easy.  Evening fishing: more than 2 dozen tilapia + 4 carp (13" was the largest).  Bait: canned sweet corn - $9.90 from Walmart.

Anyone know how the Ajijic fishing competition went on September 16?

Great report Cincy. I see a few others fishing down there every morning too. Hopefully we can coax some of those black bass up this way.

While fishing on the Ajijic Malecon at Lake Chapala one morning last week I found this dead, and slightly decayed, giant tilapia floating in the water.  As you can see it measured approx. 13".  The biggest I have ever caught was 9" from the lake.  Not sure if this is a lake fish or some discarded fish from elsewhere but it would sure be nice to catch a few fish like this every now and then...!!!



That morning I caught 5 carp and 24 tilapia

We were fishing with the fish camp guys yesterday in SA off the overpass on the malecon. Everyone catching lots of tilapia but no carpa. They are there, you can see them, but they weren't biting. The tilapia were caught with small pieces of stale tortillas!!

BTW, they were saying the fish camp guys will take you out fishing in a panga from there.

I wonder what they would charge you? Bet they'd be all over that opportunity. Jaja. Bring your own life jacket. I'm in.

This was the largest of 9 carp I caught one morning last week.  A perfect specimen!  It weighed 3.5lbs and took 12 minutes to land on 4lb line (at least 10 years old!)  All the carp, and 7 tilapia, were returned to Lake Chapala alive and well.







January seems to be the best time for catching the larger carp based on the last 2 years

Are you still using corn and a bobber or have you switched to tortilla on the bottom?

Still the same terminal tackle:-  4lb line, little bobber, Size 12 hook, 2 pieces of can corn, fished on the bottom.  Yesterday, for the first time I tried some spam but only caught one tilapia.

The problem with having an open can of spam is that it attracts dogs, especially one particular light colored pit-bull named "Rosy"....!!!
